show. if you're not familiar with it it follows a family from louisiana, a duck hunting family. they're kind of like the kardashians, but with less facial hair. the season finale last year was seen by 9.6 million people. which means the family got a raise, a & e now pays them around $200,000 per episode. you know, once upon a time this was the most popular cast on television, and now it's this. [ cheers and applause ] u know, usually the show "duck dynasty" operates at a pretty relaxed pace. there are some disagreements. sometimes they'll argue about who can eat the most donuts. but there's not a lot of drama. or at least there hasn't been in the past. this season, though, it seems like they're looking to increase the intensity by bringing some conflicts into the mix. >> for generations, they have been hunted. now, to defeat "the duck dynasty," the hunted must become the hunter. >> go! >> the "duck dynasty" season four premiere, only on a&e. it's time to pay the bills. >> we're definitely screwed now. >> jimmy: so that's fun, right? [ cheers and applause ] a show about duck hunting.
